My home in District 7 is... well... it's alright.

At our school, in the middle of our district, is very good, because we all know all of us are going to become lumberers one day, so we learn how to wield axes and chop trees at the root. Unless we are a tribute.

Every year, the 12 districts of Panem send 1 girl and 1 boy to fight to the death in an arena for the Capitol's enjoyment. One year, my father, Alpha, was entered into the Games, and he won, becoming the only victor of District 7. We live in the only occupied house of the Victor's Villiage, and are very priveleged.

I live there with my two older brothers, Abel and Omarion, aged 18 and 15. This year, I'm 12, so I could be chosen for the games! My father promised that would never happen to me, but I don't know. His father said the same thing to him. Abel is so lucky! It's his last year to be chosen for the Games.

The morning, before the reaping in the afternoon, was brought upon by Riley, my mother's funeral gift, sniffing my face. Only 8 years ago was my mother's death, on the 3rd October 2104, on my birthday. I decided I wanted to have company on my walk in the woods this morning, so I knocked for my best friend, Clato.

Clato was pretty for a boy. He had stunning blue eyes and soft brown hair. When he spoke I could get lost in his words, and his personality danced in his clothes. My nickname was 'Redhead', when he was around and sometimes I only answered to that. I'm not like the rest of the people in District 7. I have fiery red hair and brilliant green eyes, whereas everyone else in 7 have brown hair and blue eyes. Clato often asks me where I get it from, but I know I can't answer that, not with 7's tight security check.

Just after I was born, my parents fled from District 1. I don't know why, but I never question his intentions, unlike my two brothers. All I know that I am named Tamar after my grandmother, who died during the Dark Days, 33 years ago.
